Investors have fiduciary duties to incorporate Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) considerations into investment decisions to ensure long-term sustainability and financial growth over maximising short-term profits.

Part of the 'S' can include human rights policies that applies to investment decisions and portfolios under management. Examples of these types of policy include exclusionary policies.

This metric was developed by Walk Free, WikiRate, and the Business & Human Rights Resource Centre, to assess the statements produced by 91 asset managers identified as having to report under the UK Modern Slavery Act. For more information, please visit the project page.


Methodology

Does the investor disclose it has a human rights investment policy covering any portfolios under management?

Examples include any form of policy that applies to investment decisions or portfolios under management, such as exclusionary or divestment policies. The policy must refer to human rights, or relevant synonyms such as modern slavery, or labour rights.

If the company discloses that it has a human rights investment policy, please indicate “Yes”, and provide details.

If no such policy exists or is described in the statement, please select "No".
